|News and warnings|
More cancer cases and new cancer groups are included in this NORDCAN version. New cases are found in ”Myeloproliferative diseases” and for Denmark also in ”Myelodysplastic syndromes”. Some diagnoses from “Other specified cancers” are relocated in ”Other malignant haematopoietic diseases”, a group constructed to be able to sum up the new groups together with lymphomas and leukaemias in ”Malignant haematopoietic Diseases”. The average yearly extra cases for the later years are for Denmark 726, Finland 42, Iceland 14, Norway 129 and Sweden 371.
Cancer survival is now shown in ten 5-year periods from 1966-1970 to 2011-2015. We change periods with each new version to be able to present survival for the latest available 5-year time period of diagnosis. Tables showing the inclusions and exclusion from the survival calculations are added in the survival section of ”Online analysis”.
Quality tables for incidence and for survival are now included.
FAQ (frequently asked questions) is now included.
More detailed warnings can be found under Notes in “The NORDCAN database”.
